Visa Support Letters
Individual conference participants are responsible for securing their own travel visas if necessary to attend the Annual Meeting. You can find out whether you require a visa on the European Commission website.

If you require a letter of invitation to support a visa application, please contact us by email at [email protected] after you have registered for the Annual Meeting. The Registration and Cancellation Policies apply to all registrations.

Letters of invitation will be issued at the discretion of ACUNS Secretariat in consultation with LUISS Guido Carli University. ACUNS can offer no guarantees regarding the issuance of a letter of invitation and the outcome of an individual’s visa application. We will only issue letters of invitation to individuals who are on the program in some capacity and have fully registered. If you have any questions or concerns in this regard, please contact us.

Please be sure to provide sufficient lead time (at least 7-10 business days) for the processing of a letter in tandem with any official European filing deadlines for your visa application. No letters of invitation will be issued after June 15, 2018.
